Hallelujah, the gang is back. And lucky for us, "New Girl" is not one of those shows that picks up three years after they left off. Season 3 finds Jess and Nick riding up, up and away from Cece's wedding hall, giddy and elated.
After a three week hiatus, the gang reconvenes to tell the tales of how they lost their virginity. This is prompted by Schmidt's scheduled close encounter with Elizabeth, the college girlfriend we met last episode.
Given that there was some Twitter chatter about this episode, and given that Fox was promoting this week's installment more actively than normal, it was not hard to figure out what was up with "Cooler."
